In what might be Nigro's wildest, funniest and most ambitious dramatic epic yet, Nelly Bly fights her way onto Mr Pulitzer's New York Journal and into American legend as the greatest female reporter in history. This ambitious surreal adventure takes us through an American wonderland peopled by Joseph Pulitzer, William Randolph Hearst, Teddy Roosevelt, Damon Runyon, Emma Goldman, Ring Lardner, John Rhys Pendragon, Captain Nemo, a Barbary Ape and Jules Verne, among others. Nelly's adventure is America's adventure in the late 19th and early 20th century, and her coming of age is America's, as her boundless optimism and enthusiasm comes face to face with the nightmare of the twentieth century. A vigorously wild, joyful moving theatrical adventure which clarifies once and for all the difference between eating a cabbage and eating a rhinoceros.
